Purpose & passion  #wbs021

We’ve noticed a trend lately among female founders. They have a vision to do more than just make a profit or be their own boss. It’s a deep sense of purpose. In this module we dive deeper into the concepts of purpose and vision and how to create a business model that works with these elements to produce something truly exceptional.


Building your tribe #wbs024

Marketing has changed so much in the last decade. In the old days marketing was about using the psychology of fear and scarcity to try to make people buy things. Now it’s all about honesty, authenticity and genuine connection. Business is no longer about building a large faceless empire but about building a loyal, engaged and connected tribe.


Becoming an expert #wbs022

Recognised experts are able to leverage PR opportunities, speak at events, write books, give interviews, provide commentary and are someone people look to for advice and inspiration. In this module we look at how to become an expert and the strategies and techniques that will help you to achieve this.


Producing profit #wbs025

Many businesses fail to make it to the next stage because they don’t have the funds to grow, misunderstand the relationship between pricing and profit or aren’t sure which questions to be asking their accountant. Whether you’re looking to hire more staff, open an office, expand internationally or increase your profits in this module you’ll learn how to truly understand your numbers and how to increase profits and secure investment.


Systems & Scaling #wbs023

A scalable company has the potential to grow and expand far beyond where it is now. Creating systems and processes for staff to follow allows a brand to run independently and to produce products and services which can be created over and over again in a reliable, consistent and repeatable way.


The art of pivoting #wbs026

When things go wrong your ability to find a solution can be the difference between success and failure. There’s always a creative possibility and those who know how to stay calm, stay positive and find the winning solution are the ones who will prevail. In this module we explore how to leverage new opportunities such as partnerships and changing direction in your business.

‘When I began to embark on the journey to start my own business I was so overwhelmed with where to begin. There is so much information out there to help but how do I find the time to research while looking after 2 kids and still working. When I came across a Facebook ad introducing the Women’s Business School I had a ”oh my” moment.

When I looked further into it I could not believe what the course described, its values and its modules. I was so excited because it had a module that taught you ”Time Management” around your business and your family. That’s when I had another moment and realised that this was meant to be. I have no regrets and I have learnt all the essential key components to setting up, running and sustaining my business.

The support factor astounds me and I’ve made life long friends along the way too. This is not only a school it is a community, one that understands you not only as a student but as a mother, wife and entrepreneur’. Thank you for supporting me and showing me the skills to go one step further and be a Mumpreneur’.”

Mandy Benn, The Women’s Business School

Peace and Katy founders of AusMumpreneur Awards, Network and Conferences

Since we started in business we’ve worked with thousands of women and we’ve had the opportunity to be a part of their journey over a number of years. The AusMumpreneur Awards has given us a unique insight into what’s happening in Australian start-ups and small businesses and the magic that goes on behind the scenes in some of the most successful up and coming companies in Australia.

We’ve been fortunate to watch some of these journeys unfold from the very early days and we’re always fascinated by the ones who find true and lasting success and often wonder;
“How are they doing this?”
Why are they so successful where others aren’t?
What is that they’re doing differently that’s giving them this edge?’

The answers to these questions form the basis for this award-winning Accelerator program

We can help you

We’ve created a life that gives us everything we want for ourselves and our families

And we’re passionate about helping other women to do it too

Because we believe


We believe in you and your potential and we are committed to helping you recognise that potential too.

The world needs YOU to be happy, successful and fulfilled so that you can have the strength and wellbeing you need to support and nurture yourself and your family.

The benefits of this will flow on through the whole community and then from there through the whole world.

This is why we believe that investing in women is the key to changing the world

It's time

for you to step into your magnificence and share your gifts with the world

“The Women’s Business School has been such a positive injection for my business. Being a mum is super-important to me, and I was interested in learning more about growing my business alongside other mums who were in a similar situation to me. Most of us mumpreneurs are involved in a bit of a crazy juggle at times, and I really appreciated that I could be fully ‘me’ as I did this course, and that I didn’t have to pretend that I was ‘just’ a worker or business owner who wasn’t involved in that juggle. The Brisbane Masterclass was such a great opportunity to get dressed up and spend the day focused on thinking about my business. The presentations from Peace, Katy and the other women were spot on, and the conversations with other course participants were encouraging. I enjoyed hearing other women’s business stories and dreams, and also hearing their feedback on mine. The vibe was fun and supportive, and I loved that. I came away with heaps of ideas for my business. What I really appreciated though was the opportunity to then slow down and spend a month thinking through each of the course components. The delivery format is flexible, and I’ve found myself watching the presentations and reading the books on my work computer, in bed, on a train, and even by the pool as my kids do their swimming lessons! The course organisers and presenters all make you feel like they are on your side, cheering you on, and that has given me increased confidence in putting my ideas into practice. The Marketing component was especially helpful for me. It was an area that I knew I had no natural talent or experience in, but the ideas were so clearly expressed and so practical that I put some of them into place straight away. My business went from having a steady trickle of work to just that tiny bit too much. I am loving having so much work coming in, and I know that so much of it has to do with the practical steps I took after completing the Marketing Assignment.” Tori Walker, Class of 2016, The Women’s Business School

About Us

Hi we’re Peace Mitchell and Katy Garner and if you haven’t already guessed we’re passionate about supporting women. We believe that to change the world we simply need to begin by helping women. When women are well and happy they can care for their families, when families are well and happy that flows on to their communities and when communities are well and happy that flows on to help whole nations!

Investing in women has the potential to improve the outcomes for education, mental health, physical health and social wellbeing for now and for the future.

This idea was what inspired us to create AusMumpreneur, Australia’s number 1 online community for mums in business, which supports, elevates, celebrates, represents and inspires the thousands of women who have created their own businesses that work around their family life.

We love what we do and we’ve been featured in national and international media including, 7news, The Today Show, Sunrise, Today Tonight, Cosmopolitan, The Herald Sun, The Australian and hundreds of other publications.

Together we’ve written numerous books including ‘How to create your own successful and profitable business from home’ which is sold in bookstores nationally. We’re also the authors of Amazing Mumpreneurs, The 7 secrets to standing out and What I wish I knew before I became a mother.

We’ve traveled all over Australia working with women in business and helping them to develop their business at our conferences and live events.

We’re passionate about being a voice for women and have been active in advocating for more recognition of the work of Australia’s mums in business with State and Federal politicians, to encourage more funding and support for women in business. We’ve been pivotal in changing local government legislation, calling for a national conversation and thanks to our lobbying the Queensland Government recently announced $1 Million in support for home-based business owners.

Katy has a background in events and has hosted large-scale community events for thousands of people. Peace is passionate about education and is a qualified teacher who has taught both in Australia and internationally.

We’ve been awarded for our work in the community and in business, with Peace receiving the Australia Day Citizen of the Year award and Katy being awarded Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

We’ve participated on boards, Peace as a member of the board of management of Playgroup Queensland and Katy as a member of the Queensland Government Small business Advisory Board.

We’ve founded our own non-profit organisation, Mothers Helping Others, a community group with an aim to improve the lives of families. Raising over $80,000 in fundraising to build playgrounds, introducing literacy programs, parenting programs, photography workshops, and a supported playgroup for young parents.

But most importantly we are mothers. We have 7 children between us and are living proof that you can make business and family work. We understand the challenges women face as mothers starting new businesses and are passionate about ensuring women feel supported to find success through our online community, business school, events and annual Awards and Conference.

What We Wish We Had Known

We really struggled when we started out in business. We had big ideas, passion and energy but without the support of a network of other business owners around us, little experience in sales and marketing and the isolation of working from home, it was difficult to get our ideas off the ground.


As new mums when we started AusMumpreneur, there was also the pressure of juggling everything at once with our growing families. We wanted to be with our babies and have the time to play with them but we were also serious about our business and growing it to be a national brand.


There were times where the challenges seemed insurmountable and we wanted to give up but with the support of the AusMumpreneur community of generous and encouraging women who were also on a similar journey to us we found the confidence to trust ourselves and believe in our vision. Through trial and error and learning as much as we could we have come to know what works and what doesn’t and the essential things all businesses need to survive. This is the program we wish existed when we were starting out and we are so excited to be sharing this with you.


We’ve gathered the amazing mentors and experts we trust and use in our own business to bring you the most up-to-the minute advice on social media marketing, branding, time management and more.”

“When I signed up to The Women’s Business School I had an idea and no real clue how to turn it into a business. Now, 4 months in, my business is in the development phase, I have a business plan, a marketing plan and I’m currently learning how to deal with social media and how best to use it! On top of all of the practical information I have received, I have also met some amazing and inspirational women. I truly believe that we need to surround ourselves with like-minded people in order to succeed and The Women’s Business School has allowed me to connect with and turn to so many incredible women. I can honestly say that if not for this program I’d still just have an idea. This program has taught me to believe in my own abilities and to go for it. I’m very grateful to be a part of something so special.” Anna Braithwaite  The Women’s Business School
